One of my friends is a huge Bowie fan and it's his favorite

Not sure if I've heard that opinion anywhere else though. I'd say "Ziggy" is still probably the most popular but I've also seen "Low", "Heroes" and even "Aladdin Sane" mentioned as people's favorite Bowie albums. Or did you just mean *critically* acclaimed? Anyway, had never paid much attention to "Station" or even think I'd heard the album in full before (knew about half of it from hits comps). But yeah, it's interesting and damn consistent (the version of "Wild Is The Wind", while good, is overlong and doesn't really belong though). I love the sonic details, coke-fueled mania and funkiness (it's definitely Bowie's funkiest album). I still also really like both "Backstar" and "Hunky Dory" though- 3 albums with different sounds, strengths and weaknesses so hard to compare.
